This deliciously rich chili is loaded with flavor. Mole Chili Con Carne is made with tender boneless chuck roast in a chipotle pepper and dark chocolate sauce, with the robust coffee flavor of Kahlúa liqueur that helps to pack a serious chili punch. Best chili I have ever made, hands down.

I have a big family. I mean – not the Duggar family monstrous by any stretch of the imagination, but I’m the oldest of 5. When 5 kids grow up and have significant others you end up with 10 people in your house before you even invite your mom.
And the 5 of us, we get along really well, so we actually like to make up reasons to get together.
Because 12+ birthday parties a year plus holidays doesn’t cover enough bases, I guess?
This year we have been finding the most fun excuses to get together. We’ve been planning parties around movies we loved as kids with Jurassic Park topping the list. There is an 80’s party happening soon while we watch The Wedding Singer – full 80’s attire is required for attendance.
It’s THE MOST fun to have everyone over, and even more fun to re-watch things we must have viewed a zillion times when we were younger. I enjoy the menu-planning, but let’s be real.
This is not Thanksgiving, so I look for what will be simple, delicious, and cost effective for a crowd.
This Mole Chili Con Carne with Kahlúa is IT.
A fun dish with loads of flavor. It looks fancy and festive, but is really simple to pull together. And the toppings! Oh the topping possibilities are endless.
Are you familiar with Mole Sauce? It’s pretty easy to find prepared mole in the stores here. Basically it’s chili seasoned dark chocolate sauce- traditionally flavored with ancho chiles. I opted for chipotle chiles in adobo sauce because I think they are pretty easy to find in nearly any store, and I used really good quality dark chocolate.
I think this is the best chili I ever made. I’m not even joking.
The Kahlúa I stirred in at the end adds just that much more flavor. The coffee notes in the rum play really well with the tender beef and the chocolate.
A meal fit for a crowd!
It will no doubt impress.
